All About Forney, TX

Forney, TX, lies twenty-three miles east of Dallas in northwestern Kaufman County. The earliest settlers arrived, established a community in this area, and called their town Brooklyn because several springs flowed together to form a nearby brook. Soon after, the residents opened a general store, a saloon, and a blacksmith shop.

 In 1873, when the citizens applied for a post office, they discovered another town named Brooklyn in Shelby County. In honor of a newly built railroad and hoping to get federal approval for a local post office, the residents renamed their town, Forney after John Wien Forney. The town was officially incorporated in 1884.

The railroad and fertile soil attracted settlers, and the town slowly grew as a farm center and residential community. By 1960 the population had increased to more than 3,000 residents. The surrounding land was used as ranchland and for producing cotton, corn, grain, and onions. 

Today, the city has had explosive growth and is ranked as one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. Living here has a suburban feel, which can be excellent for families looking for more space and a good area to raise children. Forney is an affordable place to live and still has plenty of land available for new construction.

Forney’s proximity to downtown Dallas, North Dallas, and Las Colina’s business centers makes residential real estate desirable for people who need to commute frequently. Dallas has a healthy economy and a variety of good jobs to choose from.

Forney provides its residents with everything they want: safety, restaurants, bars, great parks, and top-rated schools. There are a variety of cultures and religions represented where residents feel welcome. Forney truly has something for everyone, and that’s why it’s a great place to call home.
